i Light Singapore 2024

When it comes to dressing up the streets in lights, the CBD is the prime location for dazzling installations – case in point, Light to Night 2024 and Singapore Night Festival 2023. Well, here’s another one coming to us soon: i Light Singapore 2024, happening from 31st May to 23rd June 2024.

What to expect at i Light Singapore 2024

i Light Singapore is a showcase of light art installations created by Singaporean and international artists. Taking place in the Marina Bay area yearly, it aims to bring across concepts of sustainability and environmentally friendly habits.

This year’s theme is called “Cyclical Nature”, with a heavy focus on the colour green. Here are some works you can expect:

At Marina Bay, the Kinetic Perspective display will take on the theme quite literally with its glowing rings of light stuck in perpetual motion; while Spin Me A Yarn features comically huge yarn balls leaving illuminated threads around the vicinity.

This year’s edition of the event will also see its light installations spilling over to the nearby streets of the Tanjong Pagar district.

Drop by Guoco Towers and Orchid Hotel to marvel at the BottleBlooms, a captivating display of approximately 1,000 upcycled plastic bottles that light up beautifully using stored solar power. At Tras Link Park, trees will be dressed with huge inflatable flowers that glow in the dark as part of the Hidden Garden display.

There’ll also be 2 satellite sites during the festival, if you don’t feel like bumping shoulders with the main crowd in the heart of the city. South Beach will play host to artworks like Lumi, a winding strip of light shaped like a winding river to pay tribute to Singapore’s maritime heritage.

Over at Millenia Walk, visitors will be greeted by the larger-than-life Modern Guru and the Path to Artificial Happiness; we won’t spoil the surprise of this whimsical work of art, but it’s a stark reminder for us to seek contentment in the present #deep.

Satellite events: GastroBeats & The Conscious Festival

A recap on how last year’s GastroBeats went down.

This year, the pretty light installations ain’t the only things worth heading down to the CBD for. GastroBeats is partnering with the festival to ensure that you don’t walk around with a growling stomach.

We’ve gotten word that the vendors this time round will feature sustainably-produced goodies to complement the event’s green themes. Some to sniff out include The Curry Club’s Mumbai Pav Bun filled with mixed veggies sourced from organic farms, as well as Yaca Pibil Tacos from Papi’s Tacos, which uses jackfruit as an interesting alternative to meat.

The Conscious Festival

To mellow out your evenings, The Conscious Festival will also be holding various activities and talks that invites visitors to reflect on mindfulness and our connection to Mother Earth. Held in the Marina Bay area, expect wellness workshops, music performances, and even an outdoor marketplace.

Plan a photoshoot at i Light Singapore 2024

It goes without saying that i Light Singapore 2024 will provide some of the best backdrops for you to plaster all over your social media feeds. For some inspo, take a look at some of the shots we’ve taken at i Light Singapore 2023. Since there’s still about a month before the festival graces Marina Bay, do bookmark the i Light Singapore website for the latest updates.

For more things to look forward to in May, set up a movie date at the upcoming Hendrick’s Sunset Cinema, or visit the Art Science Museum’s Frida Kahlo digital art exhibit. Otherwise, keep the artsy vibes flowing with rug tufting at HaiDiLao or book a jamming sesh at Swee Lee Clarke Quay.
